2009 Duluc de Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien 百利通莊園紅葡萄酒

When to drink: 2014 to 2021

Jancis Robinson

 Finely textured and attractively savoury. Dry, quite delicate and restrained, especially for 2009. (16.5/20 points)  (4/2013)

The second wine of Branaire-Ducru, this red is ready to drink three to five years after the harvest. And, according to the producer, this wine will evolve even further for the next two decades. Made from vines under 15 years old. Gravity fed, maceration for approximately three weeks and stored in 60-65% new French oak for 16-20 months post-fermentation.

"Ripe, fresh and decidedly forward in style, with a modestly tarry edge supporting the juicy blackberry, loganberry and mulled plum fruit flavors. There's a lingering anise note, with enough grip to keep this honest…" - WS90
